There are two varieties of Potassium Perchlorate available, high purity and free flowing grades are both stocked. The high purity grade is 99.8% pure Potassium Perchlorate and is a very fine white powder that will have clumped into varying sized blocks that can be broken apart easily with a pestle and mortar, or similar tools. The free flowing grade is a joy to work with, 0.5% addition of fumed silica gives the powder a smooth, fine texture that is free from clumps and is ready to mix with other powders without the need for grinding. The small fraction of fumed silica is quite inert and will not disrupt the oxidising power of the Potassium Perchlorate.
These grades of potassium perchlorate have been manufactured with very low levels of chlorate impurities.
